11:12 pm
>> the acceptance of tickets presents thorny issues. >> the supervisor john avalos and a majority of his colleagues accepted free tickets last season. >> at times you give tickets to friends? >> well, the championship game the other day i gave to my mother-in-law. >> during that february interview supervisor avalos made this statement about future free tickets. >> am i going to take tickets to go to 49er games? i would putted and to it for myself personally. seven months later will you accept free tickets this season. >> i have not decided whatly do. >> sir, it is a policy decision you have had months to think of this. >> i'm not going to decide right now. >> it is is ethical -- >> in the south bay with a new stadium less than two years away, santa clara city attorney
11:13 pm
has a different view on the ethics of free tickets. >> we are not to accept any type of tickets from the team. >> reporter: and the ethical difference shows up in brig. san francisco's contract with the 49ers written three decades ago, provides more than 75 free tickets for city leaders for every football game. santa clara's contract for the new stadium intentionally excludes any language providing free tickets for city leaders. >> we certainly don't want any perception that any official is reaping some kind of inappropriate benefit from our relationship with the team. >> reporter: why? >> we thought that that would be contrary to the ethical policy and we want want to create impropriety. >> they are to be commended.
11:14 pm
>> this law professor has publicly criticized san francisco for its free ticket policy for the city's most powerful. >> they shouldn't be doing it. it's amazing that they are still doing it. >> some just don't want to talk about it. follow ourg february investigation, some supervisors have reconsidered. >> is it ethical to accept tickets to the 49ers game for free? >> i have made a decision that moving forward i'm planning to because i understand the issues that have been raised. >> reporter: are you planning to accept tickets to 49er games this season? >> actually, no. i'm not. >> reporter: that's a change in policy. last year you accepted free tickets. >> i decided not to do that this year. >> reporter: five of the city's 11 supervisors changed their personal policies electing not to accept free tickets for personal use for the 2012 football season. >> do you believe it is unethical. >> i think there are different
11:15 pm
reasons that people do things. for me it was the right thing to do and people have to decide for themselves. >> reporter: four supervisors chu, wiener, kim and after loes used them for personal use last year and have all left the door open to again accept free tickets this season. >> you told me in the interview last year that you thought that maybe you should rethink this policy. >> i can see how people can be, you know, question it. you are here. you are doing your job o. reporting on really important news items, like this. >> that's a shame. and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing it. >> reporter: so it is one really good football team shared by two cities, with two distinctly ethical barometerers. >> it really shows a gall on the part of city officials who are taking these tickets which you can't justify. >> so five of san francisco's supervisors have pledged not to personally use the free tickets
11:16 pm
this season. four have left that door open for more free tickets, and the two remaining supervisors plan to donate all of their tickets to charities. here's the contrast. san francisco city attorney says free tickets are okay. when the 49ers move to santa clara in two years, like candle stick park, free tickets will be a thing of the past. diane? >> thank you, tony. if you have a tip for investigative unit call us at 888-996-tips or send an e-mail to the 49ers won tonight at candle stick and we will have more in a couple of minutes but first there was extra security tonight after a number of fights and injuries last year and you might be surprised what police were wearing at the game. nbc bay area ar tour ya santiago has a look for us. hello, arturo. >> everywhere i walked today i was able to see some layer of
11:17 pm
security. something not so obvious was the san francisco police department's version of a wolf in sheep's clothing. >> it happened recently where supporting your team has become a blood sport. that's why there is an emphasis this year on stadium security and fan safety. even fans who were are feeling comfortable. >> we have been here for a while now. we have been here the last half hour and everything has been okay. you hear a few rumblings but it is all good. >> i work security myself but not here. so i understand the security situation, what they have out here. >> reporter: what you see is adequate? >> yes, i think so. >> if placed under cover san francisco police officers in the stands, dressed as lions fans. others are in 49ers gear. >> actually this is my first time coming to a game. so it's good so far.
11:18 pm
yeah. >> reporter: you see enough police and security around. >> i feel secure. >> reporter: that's the con sen ses us is of the fans we talked to. regardless, candle stick works hard on security, including following new legislation that mandates them to post a number to call or text stadium security if there is trouble. >> security will come do you know help you out. i haven't had a problem. i have been coming to games, four or five last year and never had a problem. >> a lot of the stuff that is going on, it hasn't happened before but they stepped up the security and i enjoy it. it's fine. >> another thing they will target is scalpers selling tickets and merchandise. nbc bay area a news. coming up in our second half hour, exclusive behind the scenes access with ceo and owners of the 49ers.
11:19 pm
he is making big changes and building a billion dollar stadium and says he is taking a different approach with the team than his father did. >> i definitely tried to be part of the community and getting involved whether it is charitably in business efforts and, you know, going to dinner in the city. making sure that people know you are here and you actually feel the city and feel what is going on. you feel the bay area. i think that is very important. i think that's a good lesson for anyone getting in to sports. >> the 31-year-older speaks candidly about what went wrong with the stadium in san francisco and he shares the excitement he has about a big change in his personal life. we will have the full interview coming up in a bit. and new at 11:00, a plea for patience from the san jose sharks after the nhl lockout was made official last night. the team released a statement saying in part, quote, our fans and partners are number one priority. we appreciate your patience and ask that you continue to bear with us. we hope to see you and nhl
